I've cleared out the inbox (thanks for the heads up) so should be right now.
I'll PM you with more details but the answer to your question is: Soon-ish, and I'll definitely drop you a line before hand M9.

>I tried buying from BD.com last week and was told they don't sell to Aus...did you go through them?

Well I don't want to trigger gear lust related rage, but I fear that my tale may unfortunately do so. You see the price I paid, and ease of purchase left me gob-smacked!

I'm a Victorian living in Dallas, Texas (here for work). In my first week here I formed some great friendships with a couple of the staff at my local climbing gym. After our first weekend away climbing together down to Austin, they told me about this magical thing called a 'pro-deal'. Basically managers at the gym can fax orders to Black Diamond and get what I believe to be free shipping to the gym. From what I gather, the purpose of the pro deal is supposed to be to resupply the 'pro shop' section of a gym, where they sell gear retail to their customers.
Anyway, my mates offered that if I wanted anything, they could place an order for me, and I would capitalize on the wholesale prices that BD offers the gym.
A couple of weeks later I'm lifting 3 large boxes into the back of my car at the gym, with a child-at-Christmas kind of grin on my face.

The boxes contained:

BD double cliff cabana ledge
BD double deluxe fly
Zion Haul bag + belay seat
Big gun harness
Focus SA harness
Pavement bag (not for climbing, but for travel)
fi-fi hook
1 x #6 cam
3 x #5 cams
1 x #4 cam
and carribeenas for the cams.

Total price: $1,200 (sorry, I know it's unfair)

That's ok organpipe, I have access to pro deals in oz, but sts dont stock ledges, the big gun harness or haul bags. I sent them an email (bd us) explaining the sitution, but I was ignored.

Looks like I will get it from another website....anoying when I was trying to do the right thing.

I guess that will leave you with a block of four days to get some significant study done then...

If by study you mean, weekend trips to 'study' climbs in the gramps n araps, then yes, plenty of time for significant 'study' there :D

Stoked becasue both the aretes Ado and I have thrashed on are sandbags.
Stoked and stroked because we haven't gotten up one of them yet
(It looks like 100m, 24, 25, 26, scramble. 2 hanging belays. awesomely exposed. A beautiful liine, maybe we'll call it Stone Poem). The other one (A Date with Density) seems popular and good value.
Stoked because we had done all the moves on Stone Poem till Ado broke the crimp on my pitch. And I couldn't do any of his pitch, or even break any holds.
Stoked because instead of trying it I'm going walking in the desert for 1 week and will come back really weak

I'm stoked because I am soooo close to ticking Barb Wire Canoe at Frog. I've been working it on top rope and only have to tidy up a couple of moves now for the lead sendage. I'm confident that I will get the gear in on this climb even though the crack is very thin to non existent for at least 4 to 5 metres so that may mess with the head space a bit.

Oh yes, it may only be a 25 but it is a Frog grade 25 trad climb. I'm getting strong working this one and the rest of my climbing is definitely showing an improvement.

Stoked 'cause I just got three days of free heeling in powder at Kosi. More stoked 'cause I had to get the Go Anywhere Getz new front tyres today (after Canberra-Booroomba-Cnb-Arapiles-Cnb-Nowra-Cnb-Bungles-Cnb -Kosi-Cnb-Kosi-Cnb - its been a big two months for all), in Fyshwick of all places (the wife was sure I was going for a 'rub and tug' while waiting) - when I went for a walk down the road to where the second hand book shops are and scored the following:

Everest the Hard Way - Chris Bonington
Everest South West Face - Chris Bonington
Everest 1933 - Hugh Ruttledge (a slightly worn hard back with original dustcover printed in 1943)
Annapurna - Maurice Herzog - Conquest of the First 8000-metre Peak (another nice hard back printed in 1954)
Hillary:Nothing Venture, Nothing Win - The autobiography of Edmund Hillary (hard back, perfect dustcover, printed 1976)

Total price? $32 - Officially Stoked!!!!
